Milwaukee first introduced the Sawzall in 1951 and created a revolution. The Sawzall was the first hacksaw that was portable and had a reciprocating mechanism that allows the blade to make a 3/4 inch stroke. The first Milwaukee Sawzall was corded, but as battery technology improved, the cordless Sawzall was introduced. The Milwaukee 2620-21 18-Volt Sawzall is a fine entry in the proud Sawzall line. This article provides details about the Sawzall hacksaw.
The Milwaukee 2620-21 18-Volt Sawzall has a 18V XC high capacity red lithium™ battery. The red lithium battery promises "40% more run-time, 20% more speed, 20% more torque" and "fade free power." In addition, the battery promises to continue operating in zero degree F weather, run 20% cooler than other batteries, have 50% more battery recharges and "no memory effect." According to the folks at DeWalt Owners Group who put the battery through its paces, they discovered that the claims were true. The saw is able to deliver up to 3200 SPM (strokes per minute). The saw's power is actuated by a trigger.
The 2620-21 18-Volt Sawzall measures 17 3/4 inches long, 3 1/2 inches deep and 6 1/4 inches tall. The tool weighs 7.9 pounds with a one-inch stroke length. When the Sawzall blades are installed, the length of the saw increases. The weight enables the saw to be used comfortably for long run times, something that is appreciated by the user.
Features and included pieces
The Milwaukee 2620-21 18-Volt Sawzall has a gear-protected clutch that serves to lengthen the tool's useful life. The blade is secured in the saw via a "lever action QUIK-LOK™ blade clamp". The trigger allows you to use the saw at variable speeds. Should you be concerned about when to charge the battery, it has a "fuel gauge" which allows you to monitor the battery's power.
Additions The saw comes with a plastic carrying case as well as one Sawzall blade. When the saw is shopped to you, the combined weight of the case and the saw rises to 16 pounds. It also includes a charger that charges the battery in one hour. Finally, the tool comes with a "Five years limited tool warranty."
